Master of Science (Mixed Mode)

Master of Science (Industrial Mathematics)- Starting on February 2018
Program Profile
The Master of Science (Industrial Mathematics) is a three semester (minimum) program designed to provide in-depth coverage of topics of the industrial and applied mathematics and computational tools in two sub-specializations, namely (i) Data Computing, and (ii) Computational Mathematics. The program emphasizes embedded case study in all lectured courses that enables students to integrate theory and application as well as using mathematical software such as EXCEL, C/C++, MatLab, R Language and GAPs as the essential and vital tools. The program also requires every student to complete a project dissertation based on a chosen applied and industrial problems.
